Profiles In Leadership: Mike WellsMar 02, 2020
“I love my community and I am honored to serve it,” said Mike Wells, currently Vice Chairman of the Pasco County Commissioners and candidate for Pasco County Property Appraiser, "I want to do my part to make sure Pasco continues to thrive."
Mike has lived in Pasco County for over 40 years. A graduate of Ridgewood High School and Pasco Hernando State College, he worked for more than 16 years for one employer, Enterprise Holdings (the car rental company). In 2014, he began a new career as a Realtor for Coldwell Banker. In that same year, he was elected to the Pasco County Board of Commissioners. As Vice Chairman in 2017 and Chairman in 2018, Mike worked to balance budgets, keep taxes and fees low, prioritize public safety, and mitigate neighborhood flooding and traffic congestion.
It's hard to find anyone more involved in organizations that promote the betterment of Pasco County.
Mike has been appointed to represent the Pasco County Board of Commissioners to the boards of these organizations:
Area Agency on Aging
Early Learning Coalition of Pasco and Hernando Counties
Pasco Economic Development Council
SMARTstart West Pasco Entrepreneur Center Advisory Board
Property Value Adjustment Board
Tampa Bay Estuary Program.
Mike provides leadership and insights to these vital organizations:
YMCA of the Suncoast
Alliance for Healthy Communities Inc, ASAP of Pasco County
National Association of Counties' Veterans and Military Services Committee
Feeding Pasco’s Elderly
Public Safety & Services Advisory Committee.
If Mike is not helping one of these organizations or working on Commission business, he's probably meeting the public at an event or helping his favorite charities, The Angelus, Sunrise of Pasco, and the Coastal Conservation Association. He enjoys spending time with his family, as well as boating and fishing.
Next, Mike hopes to serve the community as Pasco County Property Appraiser, a role in which he wants to help strengthen Pasco County's economy and housing market.
Mike, thanks for your hard work and leadership in Pasco County, and press on!
